This publication consists of a series of lessons, prepared by the Human Rights Correspondence School, a project of the AHRC, on the relationship between the rule of law and the implementation of human rights in Asia. The four lessons deal respectively with the rule of law and human rights implementation, the role of the police, the role of the prosecution and the role of the judiciary. Together, the lessons speak to the flaws in each of the justice mechanisms - the police, prosecution and judiciary - and using specific cases from different Asian countries, are able to show how these flaws prevent the realization of people's rights. The cases include prison officials in India setting a prisoner on fire for daring to complain about poor prison conditions, a torture victim in Sri Lanka killed one week prior to testifying in court against his torturers, court orders in Nepal routinely ignored by the military and the attorney general of Indonesia refusing to investigate and prosecute gross human rights violations. The value of these cases - as they speak to systemic flaws - is enhanced by the inclusion of relevant international and domestic provisions as appendices.
